    Is John Cena still considered the Superman of WWE?

    Yes, and No.

    CM Punk was WWE champion for over a year prior to The Rock winning and Cena lost to Rock last year. So although Cena is champion now he had a hard-fought match and has not looked that tough the last year or so. That said, he's still largely lame and shouldn't hopefully be champion too long. But given WWE's lack of major face stars he & punk will probably be feuding for a while.

    Or we can hope against hope that they do a double turn and turn Cena heel and Punk face.

    I have wanted Cena to turn heel for years but if it doesn't happen tonight, I'm officially giving up on it. Even if he turns 4 months from now, I will deem it too little too late.

    Last night was the culmination of poor planning and playing it safe. They have a miracle to perform tonight on RAW.

    Cena definitely won't go heel while Punk is heel.

    According to NoDQ Mania had some serious time constraints which is why America the Beautiful was dropped and there were no backstage segments. It doesn't though say why, surely WWE know how much TV time they get and can schedule accordingly as they have every other year.
    Apparently a lot of people had trouble seeing what was going on in the arena because of the set and roof on the ring and had to be moved. Some issue also with the Live Stream people paid for so WWE is issuing refunds

    Apparently people on various cable providers like Comcast and Verizon also had issues with their PPV service.

    Will Randy Orton ever turn heel again?

    That was rumored to be the plan for Orton post - WM, but with Show turning on his partners and knocking them both out after they lost last night, who the hell knows?

    Orton is better as a heel, but who is he going to feud with?

    Del Rio seems set to continue with Swagger, and even if Jack is suspended for a month are WWE going to put Orton in the title hunt anymore given his recent history? They aren't big on given belts to guys who might get fired next time they screw up (which knowing Orton could be any time). Sheamus is the only other major face on Smackdown that heel Orton could feud with.

    I'm still pissed the Orton/Rock "Battle of the 3rd generation Superstars" that had been rumored for Survivor Series one year never materalized.

    Rock vs Orton would be good. Shame Rock isn't around enough for that to happen.

    Orton needs to "Kill" another Legend since he is/was the Legend Killer :p

    Supposedly Rock's in, at the very least, the advertising plans for SummerSlam. If you turn Orton heel before August, you could probably have at least a good six months to build up to some sort of Rock/Orton matchup.

    Serious RAW panic and apparent rewrites because The Rock is a no-show.

    Throwing his toys out of the pram maybe?

    It's a good - high profile feud for Orton that wouldn't jeopardize any title plans should Orton get himself into trouble again.

    Edit: Injury notes from WM:

    --HHH's arm got caught underneath him on the table spot last night and he thought he broke his arm. He got X-rays and the arm wasn't broken. Brock Lesnar was out on his feet by a knee from HHH for about five minutes during the match last night. Shawn Michaels suffered a broken nose. So much for retirement. C.M. Punk's leg was in bad shape from that elbow onto the table. He was also getting X-rays last night and they said he needs an MRI.

    Maybe, but he's on his last warning so one more incident and he's gone. Given what just happened with Jack Swagger after he was just granted a push WWE may be cautious about giving Orton a run as WHC again.


    At least Undertaker didn't get injured at Mania :p

    Orton got in trouble with a Wellness Policy drug violation last summer, like @SithLordDarthRichie states, he's pretty much on his last warning.

    And of 'Taker did get injured, we likely would never know about it until way down the road (like with him and his broken foot at HIAC in '98.)

    I'll add this: This was the worst possible time for WrestleMania to tank. Because there'll likely be even worse disintrest than usual in RAW and it has the double whammy of coming off a)a bad WrestleMania and B) The NCAA Championship game both of which will likely hurt the ratings and send Vince into another panic season of firings/hiring old guys/pushing down younger talent.

    Hmm maybe if he gets fired, he can become an actor, cause he will be in the new 12 rounds movie and we already saw him acting in a movie called Big Red i think it's called

    Jake the Snake Roberts snake Damien drew better crowd reaction than John Cena and all he did was slither around a ring.

    Cena is awful hes so hard to watch on the Mic...
